stupid muscle [Feb. 24th, 2002|11:51 am]
Brad Fitzpatrick
I keep forgetting how I tore that muscle in my back (or whatever I did) while skiing in Utah, and I keep going and doing pull-ups on my birthday present pull-up bar from Abel ... and it keeps hurting like a bitch.

It's just annoying because for some reason, that muscle is only used for pull-ups. Whenever I do one, there's a shooting pain down my right side, but I can do anything else fine without even noticing it. It's getting slowly better, though.

that's yucky. i pulled a muscle (in my SLEEP, how stupid) yesterday and so i can definitely feel your pain. it's a calf muscle, and so every time i go up a flight of stairs i can feel its foreshortening in my leg, but other than that it doesn't hurt at all.

make sure you're getting enough potassium -- my doctor yelled at me because it's very hard for muscles to regain their former elasticity after you've pulled them without enough potassium, and i hate bananas and rarely eat yogurt and am a vegetarian, therefore wasn't getting any.

Let your back heal. I'll give you another week before we do the test.

Come on you pussy, just do one handed pullups with your left arm :-)
